There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become Children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
ALL who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave THE RIGHT to become Children of God.
But, he didn’t care.
He gladly came to a hostile world to bring YOU life. So, whatever negative thoughts you’re thinking, or self-doubt you hold — realize this: Jesus came to give you the right to be his child. Not the privilege, the right. We often talk about what is and isn’t a right in our society. Right to life, Right to bear arms, Right to speech, etc.
